Some of the calls could be considered iffy, but let's not forget that the Celts are an established team and we are trying to crawl into something that resembles contention. Thus, we're not about to get any breaks if we allow another team to dictate the tempo of the game. Jack Armstrong made a great point in the latter stages of the game, he said that it was one of those games where the home fans never felt as if the away team had threatened Boston at all. In other words, the Raptors were never in the game, and almost spectators. When a team doesn't take charge and consequently demand respect, they often won't receive the same respect their opposition receives. It may or may not be fair, but it is often how it is.
